Storm at Sea: Part Two

A House, A Home: Part Three

Week - 427

Hearts of Fire: Part Two

Week - 428

Hearts of Fire: Part Three
by saphira_27

Week - 449

Tatterwings: Part Two

Week - 450

Tatterwings: Part Three
by saphira_27
Description: "Edna's tower isn't too far away from here... she's said to be friendlier than others in this accursed wood, so I think we should start there."

Week - 451

Tatterwings: Part Four
by saphira_27

Week - 452

Tatterwings: Part Five

Description: Jennumara felt the magic connection between herself and Archos snap. She dashed to the top of her tower and looked in her mirror, waiting impatiently for the mist to clear.

Week - 453

Tatterwings: Part Six
by saphira_27
Description: The Darkest Faerie threw back her blue-black head and laughed. "Look at what's become of you, Jennumara!"

Week - 454

Tatterwings: Part Seven
by saphira_27

Week - 475

The Wheel of Glory: Part One
by saphira_27
Description: It was too much for Miles to keep track of at once. Arcadius – the builder of the five wheels of Neopia – speaking of a first wheel, which he hadn't invented!

Week - 476

The Wheel of Glory: Part Two
by saphira_27
Description: "What happened, Miles? I got here first, and you were just lying on the floor by the magic paintings, all tied up! Doc said that he thought he smelled sleep gas, but how did sleep gas get in here?"

Week - 477

The Wheel of Glory: Part Three

Description: Miles rewrapped his makeshift turban around his head as Thag and Plesio rowed the boat up the River Sakh.

Week - 478

The Wheel of Glory: Part Four

Week - 480

Lady Sandstorm: Part One
by saphira_27
Description: "It may be best to do what we did last time – remind him that Sakhmet and Qasala are allies. Unless he's tripled his forces since his last attempt, he can't possibly hope to stand against us together."

Week - 481

Lady Sandstorm: Part Two
by saphira_27
Description: Jazan blinked a few times, but he didn't let any other signs of his weariness show. There were quite a lot of Qasalans watching his small group leave the city...

Week - 482

Lady Sandstorm: Part Three
by saphira_27
Description: Hanso and Brynn only looked confused – Jazan realized that they probably had no idea what was going on. He asked, "Nightsteed, could we have a history lesson for all concerned?"

Week - 483

Lady Sandstorm: Part Four
by saphira_27
Description: Nabile twisted a strand of hair anxiously as Jazan said, "She was a Fire Faerie gone bad. She’s the reason the Lost Desert is a desert."

Week - 484

Lady Sandstorm: Part Five
by saphira_27
Description: "So that way must be the room that fills with water! It's down a flight of stairs. Tomos and I fell in there, and then we went that way – so that way must be the library we found!"

Week - 485

Lady Sandstorm: Part Six
by saphira_27
Description: Jazan didn't even look at him. "Thief, if you dare to compare me to Razul..."

Week - 486

Lady Sandstorm: Part Seven
by saphira_27
Description: Jazan stood in front of his scrying ball, wondering one final time if this was a good idea.

Week - 487

Lady Sandstorm: Part Eight
by saphira_27

Week - 488

Lady Sandstorm: Part Nine
by saphira_27
Description: "Have the faeries arrived yet?"

Nabile shook her head. "Not a sign of them."


Week - 489

The Squire and the Scholar: Part One
by saphira_27
Description: Lisha tried to suppress a snort. "It'd be nicer if your example was realistic, sir. Jeran won't let me any closer to a battle than he can help."

Week - 490

The Squire and the Scholar: Part Two
by saphira_27
Description: "So, what are we not to do once we don't sneak out of the castle?"

Week - 491

The Squire and the Scholar: Part Three
by saphira_27
Description: Lisha shook her head. All of these knights and their ideas of "duty"...

Week - 492

The Squire and the Scholar: Part Four
by saphira_27
Description: Lisha gripped her wand. It's just me and Ro now. A squire and a scholar, out to save Meridell.

Week - 493

The Squire and the Scholar: Part Five
by saphira_27

Week - 494

The Squire and the Scholar: Part Six
by saphira_27

Lisha shrieked...


Week - 495

The Squire and the Scholar: Part Seven
by saphira_27
Description: Jeran held Lisha so tightly she could hardly breathe as he scolded, "Lisha! What possessed you to do such an insane..."

Week - 496

My Enemy, My King: Part One
by saphira_27
Description: It has been many years since you have wielded your blade in the service of Qasala. As your king, I command that you return...

Week - 497

My Enemy, My King: Part Two
by saphira_27
Description: "These directions, coupled with my own notes and translations, will lead you to the underground chamber where the 'Son of the Sun' hid his greatest treasure."

Week - 498

My Enemy, My King: Part Three
by saphira_27
Description: He'd lived too long, travelled too far, and made too much of a life elsewhere to let himself die back in Qasala. He had to survive this.

Week - 499

My Enemy, My King: Part Four
by saphira_27
Description: Alaric eased himself down to the bottom of a long, slick wall with only scant handholds, then looked up at the dot of light at the top of the slope and lit his own torch. "The rest of you can come down now!"

Week - 500

My Enemy, My King: Part Five
by saphira_27
Description: Alaric awoke with a ferocious headache – he put a hand to his head as he opened his eyes.

Week - 501

My Enemy, My King: Part Six
by saphira_27
Description: "The tiles on the floor are traps – there's one real path to each place, but other than that they open up into spike pits."

Week - 502

My Enemy, My King: Part Seven
by saphira_27
Description: "It doesn't matter – what matters is getting that Fyora-forsaken Orb out of this palace before your father finds out that it's gone!"

Week - 503

More Powerful than Magic: Part One
by saphira_27
Description: Had it really been twenty years since the curse had ended? The Old Qasalan runes written on banners at every street corner proclaimed it, but Jazan still had trouble believing it.

Week - 504

More Powerful than Magic: Part Two
by saphira_27
Description: "How? She's been a statue for fourteen years! How in Neopia could she have gotten loose?"

Week - 505

More Powerful than Magic: Part Three
by saphira_27
Description: Hanso said with fake cheer, "King Jazan actually agrees with me? I feel so loved!"

Week - 506

More Powerful than Magic: Part Four
by saphira_27
Description: "I am the Games Master! Please leave, unless you wish me to utterly defeat you."

Week - 507

More Powerful than Magic: Part Five
by saphira_27
Description: Hanso muttered to Jazan, "Congratulations. I think we've managed to find someone who's even more annoying than I am!"

Week - 508

More Powerful than Magic: Part Six
by saphira_27
Description: If it had been any other night, Jazan would have been excited. The Vault of Queens contained some of the most powerful artifacts that had ever existed in Neopia, but mere mortals were rarely allowed inside.

Week - 509

More Powerful than Magic: Part Seven
by saphira_27

Week - 511

More Powerful than Magic: Part Nine
by saphira_27

Week - 513

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part One
by saphira_27
Description: "If I wanted that blaster fixed with Mallard tape, I'd have done it myself!"

Week - 514

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Two
by saphira_27
Description: "I'm glad we found you. This isn't a standard shipping lane – Spaceward 6 is here to patrol for pirates. Has your ship been attacked?"

Week - 515

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Three
by saphira_27
Description: Cassius slid into his seat as Marzai began, "The sorceress Jalitha has been a problem for Eoxan-zortha for centuries..."

Week - 516

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Four
by saphira_27
Description: Trinian shouted, "Any sign of the shadows?"

Bea commented, "I'm pretty sure they're back there pointing and laughing."


Week - 517

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Five
by saphira_27

Week - 518

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Six
by saphira_27
Description: A portly Tonu snorted. "Surely you jest, Lord Firetamer."

Week - 519

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Seven
by saphira_27
Description: It wasn't as if he had the same skills – the useful skills – that everyone else had, anyway. Unless Jalitha needed some pipes fixed, he was pretty much useless.

Week - 520

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Eight
by saphira_27
Description: It was all too clear that the mine's tunnels had been abandoned for lifetimes – there were drippings and scuttlings in the darkness beyond the range of their iridan lamp. Yaxal asked nervously, "Just how stable is the rock?"

Week - 521

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Nine
by saphira_27
Description: And then he realized that the darkness seemed a little... blacker... than it should have. Horns rang out from the tops of the towers. "Shadows! Shadows! Shadows attacking!"

Week - 522

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Ten
by saphira_27
Description: Cassius said, "We'll save her. And when she sees us she'll start complaining about how we took our own sweet time and how she could have gotten herself out easier."

Despite his joking, though, he couldn't get Jory to smile.


Week - 523

Starblaze and Blasterfire: Part Eleven
by saphira_27
Description: Then he felt a draft. There was a bigger room up ahead. He was close – he could feel the darkness lurking beyond.

Week - 526

Houseguests
by saphira_27
Description: Jazan sighed. Nabile loved throwing herself into holidays, and he supposed it would be fun for the children. But he had no fond memories of them, himself – for him, a holiday had been a day when he successfully avoided his father. Razul had certainly never hung a stocking or a sprig of holly in his life.

Week - 529

Once a Scarab: Part One
by saphira_27
Description: Tomos didn't find it that hard to elude the palace guards as he snuck into one of the many gardens that surrounded the building. Everyone was still too busy celebrating the defeat of Razul...

Week - 530

Once a Scarab: Part Two
by saphira_27
Description: Bokan snapped, "Tomos, are you paying attention?"

Week - 531

Once a Scarab: Part Three
by saphira_27
Description: "Tomos upset an Ummagine cart to let him get away, but couldn't get away fast enough himself. He's cooling his heels in the dungeons right now."

Week - 532

Once a Scarab: Part Four
by saphira_27
Description: It was people like Jazan and Amira who were royalty to the bone, not her. But the guard was holding out his key. "Shall we go, then, milady?"

Week - 533

Once a Scarab: Part Five
by saphira_27
Description: And all they had was this useless mirror. He muttered, "You'd think King Jazan could have given her some sort of magic weapon or something useful."

Week - 534

Once a Scarab: Part Six
by saphira_27
Description: Yari asked, eyes wide, "You really turned him into a Scamander?"

Week - 535

Once a Scarab: Part Seven
by saphira_27
Description: Tomos was getting irritated quickly. "Once a Scarab, always a Scarab. Don't talk about her like she's some sort of traitor."

Week - 536

Once a Scarab: Part Eight
by saphira_27
Description: "The news has gotten out. We'll have allies, and his soldiers and sorcerers won't help him too much if the whole city has turned against him."

Week - 537

Once a Scarab: Part Nine
by saphira_27
Description: Tomos couldn't help but look around in amazement as he jogged down the street toward the Scarab hideout. To an outside eye, the bustle of the street looked normal. But Tomos knew...

Week - 538

Once a Scarab: Part Ten
by saphira_27
Description: Nabile slipped her knife onto her belt – the only thing she had left to do was to cover her face and hair with a wrap like the desert traders used, so that no one would recognize her before the fighting began.

Week - 539

Once a Scarab: Part Eleven
by saphira_27
Description: Amira said, "I want to go to the palace, and the throne room."

It was official – Nabile was the only sane royal person that he knew.


Week - 540

The Scarab and the Sea: Part One
by saphira_27
Description: It still seemed strange to Tomos that he was in charge of the other four Neopians, instead of being marched along in irons behind them.

Week - 541

The Scarab and the Sea: Part Two
by saphira_27
Description: Jaryth hit his head against the table repeatedly. "He convinced the captain to leave without us? How in Nuria's name..."

Week - 542

The Scarab and the Sea: Part Three
by saphira_27
Description: Tomos looked around the deck of the Sea Queen at the sailors preparing for a battle with pirates, wishing that any second he would wake up and it would have all turned out to be a nightmare.

Week - 543

The Scarab and the Sea: Part Four
by saphira_27
Description: "There's not much we can do until we get to wherever they're sailing to. Then we'll try to free ourselves and get those jewels and the treaty back."
